Weekends


Weekends are for memory making, 
relaxing and enjoying quiet moments of our days.  
If you would like, please share your weekend moments 
  in the comment section with a link to your blog.



My weekend was kind of nice, was yours?  As I sit here typing this post, the sun is shining outside and the birds are singing away.  All of the trees and bushes are green, even the ones around our house that the deer mowed down through the winter.  I believe they will look completely healthy green by the wedding.  I hope so, I really don't want to rip all of them out.  But then again, I don't want dead bushes in my yard.
Fingers crossed!!


Our daughter was visiting for the weekend and we got out and walked.  Frodo was thrilled to be outside as well.


The bulk of the painting is finished.  PHEW.  My husband did the majority of the work, God bless him.  He is a driven possessed painter; he worked until 9 p.m. sometimes.  So now we have those spots where paint is not supposed to be and someone has to fix that (not me??).  Also he is still repairing part of the ceiling in the family room where the taping bubbled.  We were talking about how maybe we are getting too old for this kind of home maintenance, the aches and pains.  However, a good night's sleep did wonders for the recovery time.  I am still sore, especially my hands, because of my RA. In a few days, I should be back to normal.

My weekend:

:: roasted potatoes :: baked chicken :: sugar cookies :: humidity :: easing into a knitting lull :: swinging on the patio :: sunglasses :: being grateful and thankful :: pizza :: wings ::

How was your weekend?  I'd love to hear!!

  1. My weekend has been uneventful. Ran to the bookstore on Friday. Yesterday was spent doing house work, watching the NASCAR race and eating Chinese. Today, I did my hair, went for a walk, and putzed around. Oh, got some knitting in there also - and some reading!

  5. I bet you and your daughter had a great time together!! We had a wonderful weekend here, not stressful, just right. Ran errands with one daughter Saturday morning while hubby prepared awesome smoked ribs and corn on the cob. Got all the veggie beds weeded in between rain showers on Saturday and had a "funny movie" night with the whole family. Today we were all home in the morning and then in the afternoon the girls decided to go shopping and to the movies together. Which left "the old people" to do as the pleased, which means we went and listened to our friend play in a band. Fun... :-)

  6. My husband worked hard and stained the deck over the weekend...I am thankful for the effort, but I can't wait for the stink to be gone. I am not a big fan of the fresh paint smell...I feel my brain cells mutating! Happy knitting and I will be thinking bright thoughts for your bushes.

  7. Well, my weekend wasn't as good as yours because my daughter isn't here! But it was very relaxing. Lunch with a friend, a walk with another. Netflix with my husband. Lots of knitting. I can't complain.

  15. We've had rain so often that being outdoors for very long is a challenge. Your walk looks so calming and beautiful. And yay! for the painting being almost finished. I wish my husband worked as quickly as yours!

  16. It sounds like you had a productive weekend. We did have pizza night this week! I think spring is creeping in and throwing our old schedule in the air but changes are nice. The paint looks lovely and so do your pictures!
